Worth Gregory grew up in Fort Mill, SC, where he played football at Fort Mill High School before heading onto Alabama in 2012. At Alabama, he redshirted and was on the 2012 National Championship team. He then transferred to East Carolina University, where he was a three-year starter, earning all-conference and all academic from 2013-2016. A 2017 graduate of East Carolina, Gregory excelled on the field and in the classroom. The three-time Ray Guy Award Watch List selection averaged 43.0 yards per punt during his 37-game ECU career, which ranks as the fourth-highest total in school history. The team captain set a single-season record as a junior, placing 32 punts inside the 20-yard line, and was named the Pirates’ special teams MVP during his final two years of action. At the end of his collegiate career, he had a brief stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Post-graduation, Worth got into college football coaching, where he was the Special Teams Assistant at Utah State. While at Utah State, he coached an All-American returner and placekicker, Dominik Eberle, who was a finalist for the Lou Groza and now holds over 20+ records at the school. He then moved onto NC State, where he coached special teams in 2019, helping head the unit that produced two All-ACC specialists in Chris Dunn and first-year punter Trenton Gill. That was the first time NCSU has achieved this in over 30+ years. He looks forward to using his past experiences and coaching connections to help the next generation of specialists chase after their goals.
